The Saudi government largely argued that there was concealed telephone surveillance as part of the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to New York Times and the Becker expert consultants. And then Post (owned by Bezos) began covering Khasoggi's murder seriously from October 201
There is also a "close relationship" between Saudi regent Mohammad bin Salman and AMI leader David Pecker, according to de Becker. The chairman brought bin Salman's intermediary Kacy Grine to a private meeting with President Trump, while the company also created a magazine to sell bin Salman to the United States with Grine's help. The implication, which you may assume, is that Saudi Arabia intended to oppose Bezos and Post using Enquirer as a willing channel.
AMI has insisted that it "acted lawfully" in reporting on Bezos, while the Saudis have denied both involvement in the Bezos incident and bin Salman's involvement in the Khashoggi murder. Not that this will necessarily help them a lot. De Becker has sent the results to federal officials investigating AMI's actions and it is up to them to decide whether Saudi Arabia and AMI have hurt Bezos & # 39; phone.
